  1. This week, PocketFives caught up with The Agnostic(pictured), who had a terrific week on Ultimate Poker, taking down both the Sunday $10,000 and Event 5 of the Big 25 series. All told, he has nine cashes in the last eight days for a total payday of $7,600. Playing mostly Pot Limit Omaha cash games until a month ago, he decided to try out the tournament side of poker. The Agnostic has resided in Nevada since 1999, living in a small town outside of Carson City. He recently joined our Nevada poker community. PocketFives: Where do you like to play poker online? The Agnostic: I only play online at Ultimate Poker. I tried WSOP.com for about three minutes on the play money side and hated the software. I feel more comfortable with Ultimate Poker. I feel a loyalty to that site since it was the first in the marketplace and have found that playing at different sites is not good for my game. I feel that focusing on one site and getting to know the players and their tendencies is paramount to having success in the online game today. PocketFoves: How did you come up with your screen name? The Agnostic: I play as The Agnostic on Ultimate Poker. I chose that name because I am an Agnostic and it seems simple and controversial as well as a name people will remember when they play against me. PocketFives: When did you first start playing online poker? The Agnostic: I was introduced to online poker in 2003. At the time, I was a losing horse racing player and made all of my wagers and did all of my handicapping online. A friend told me that with all the time and effort I was putting into horse racing, I should learn the game of poker. I started like most people, playing freerolls at various sites, and couldn't get enough. It was as if a whole new world was opened up to me and I soaked it all in. Things really did not start to click for me until 2006. I started playing some bigger buy-in tournaments on PokerStars and was holding my own. In 2009, I had my best year as a full-time player, taking down several Sunday Mixed Game tournaments on PokerStars and also winning the Nightly $100K for $19,500. When Ultimate Poker started up last year, I was skeptical at best. I had not played online poker since Black Friday. I knew the player pools would be small and questioned whether it would really be worth full-time grinding online poker again. I did okay, taking down the nightly $50 buy-in $1K Guarantee in May. I was in Las Vegas at the time and decided that the time involved would not be worth the reward since the site only offered Hold'em and I do better at Mixed Games. PocketFives: We understand you started playing full-time recently? I started playing full-time again four weeks ago and have found the PLO/8 games to be interesting and full of action. As far as my recent tournament success, it has been a combination of everything clicking and making the correct moves at critical times. My approach to the game is simple: I choose my tournaments carefully and put thought into if the time involved is worth the prize money at the end. I find poker extremely draining mentally and, as I get older, it gets harder to stay focused for long sessions. PocketFives: What are your favorite games to play right now? The Agnostic: My favorite game to play is Stud/8 or HORSE. Stud/8 is a great game that requires, in my opinion, more skill than any other variant of poker. I am planning on playing a few live events in Reno this month and will be down in Las Vegas for a couple of weeks during the World Series of Poker. Want the latest poker headlines and interviews?

  2. We are seeing a lot of new names on both regulated Nevada poker sites for the first time and wonder if this is the result of the Full Tilt Poker remission process. We will try to see if any of these players are willing to share their stories with us. WSOP.com ran three of its $3,000 events as scheduled. On Wednesday, the site ran a special satellite for two $1,500 seats to any 2014 World Series of Poker $1,500 event. All of their events exceeded the guarantees. There were 262 runners vying for 33 prizes totaling $15,975. The players with the highest valued prizes won were PokerStars and VegasJF, each winning a $1,500 seat to an upcoming 2014 WSOP event. It was PokerStars' first win of the year and VegasJF's second. Neither of these players was seen at a final table at all last year. The player with the highest cash win was SuGaRaY71 with a payout of $1,268, taking down Thursday night's event. This is SuGaRay71's fifth time cashing in these major events this year. He is starting to show consistency in making the final tables, having first been seen on December. This week, Ultimate Poker held four tournaments, the $2,500 Nightly events. There were 120 runners generating a prize pool of $12,512 and paying a total of 19 spots. The highest cash this week went to POSTA for $1,474. The last time we saw POSTA win an event was in the UPC2 series last year. At that time, POSTA took down Event #13 for $23,878. The new guy on the block on Ultimate Poker to keep an eye on is The Agnostic, who is showing up at the final tables of the Big 25 Series as well as the $2,500 nightly events. The following are the tournament results for this week from Ultimate Poker and WSOP.com, the two legal and regulated online poker sites in Nevada.

  3. In the Sunday $10K Guaranteed on Ultimate Poker in recent weeks, PocketFives' own Aaron lvkid7Bass banked $2,900 for finishing first out of 84 players. Bass is a regular contributor to PocketFives' Nevada poker community and so we wanted to get the inside scoop on the first regulated online poker market in the US and one of its frequent players. PocketFives: How are you feeling about your $2,900 cash in the Ultimate Poker $10K? Aaron Bass: I'm ecstatic. It's a tournament and I don't get to play a lot of those, so it's good to take down a big one when you have a chance. I don't have a bigger bankroll to play the $100 buy-ins regularly either. Over the summer, I won an Ultimate Poker Summer Series event and along with it came a watch, which has gotten delayed and so they sent me a $100 ticket instead. That's what I used to play the $10K. PocketFives: How have the tournament fields been in Nevada? Aaron Bass: The first few weeks were the peak in terms of traffic. The Sunday tournaments were getting 150 or more players and, since then, it has dropped off. In the nightly tournaments, the attendance is holding steady. The numbers have been steady for a few months now. Until Nevada can get compacts with more states besides Delaware, I don't see the fields going up that much. PocketFives: What trends have you noticed so far between WSOP.com and Ultimate Poker, two of the three regulated sites in Nevada? Aaron Bass: I have seen more tournament play going to WSOP.com. I think Ultimate has the lockdown on Omaha. Ultimate is better for sit and gos, whereas WSOP.com is better for tournaments. PocketFives: Real Gaming just soft launchedin Nevada. What do you hope to see from subsequent sites that join the market? Aaron Bass: I hope when they open, they have promotions geared toward players who haven't played much. If they can bring in players who don't know online poker is back in Nevada, that will help. I don't see Nevada alone having a lot of growth unless we get compacts with more states. PocketFives: Do Nevada residents know that regulated online poker exists? Aaron Bass: I have 10 friends who are recreational players who play live. Out of those 10, four or five have played online and bought in for a couple hundred dollars.
  4. In Nevada, players have been talking about WSOP.com featuring too many 2014 WSOP satellites and taking away some of their favorite guaranteed events. All that changed this weekend, however, as guarantees were raised and new events were added. There was something for everyone and WSOP.com still had many WSOP satellites running as well. WSOP.com kicked off its weekend with six major events including the Weekend Warm-Up $5,000 Guarantee and the Re-Entry R&A $3,000 Guarantee on Saturday. WSOP.com had 402 runners vying for the 52 available prizes totaling $47,560. One of the events had a $215 buy-in with a top prize of an entry to the 2014 WSOP Main Event worth $10,000. The player with the highest individual cash this weekend on WSOP.com was astroboy in the WSOP Main Event Qualifier, winning a $10,000 seat. This weekend saw Ultimate Poker run four major events. There were 169 runners fighting for the 22 prize spots available totaling $19,097. The player with the highest individual cash was The Agnostic in the Sunday $10,000 for $2,900. That event had an overlay of $1,992, as the guarantee was not met. The Agnostic also took down Event 5 of the Big 25. This and seven other cashes have earned him over $7,600 in the last eight days. We will have more about The Agnostic in an exclusive interview with PocketFives. He might make a believer out of you.

  12. We caught up to PocketFives member ZenEnso, whose name is Brandon Leopard (pictured). He plays on Ultimate Poker and WSOP.comas ZenSatori. He is now a Nevada resident, having moved from Alabama just two months prior to Black Friday. Leopard has cashed five times on each site this year, giving him earnings of over $5,500 in the larger guarantee events. He is also seen at other guarantee events, cashing 13 times and taking down five of those events outright. Visit PocketFives' Nevada poker community for the latest news and discussion from Nevada players. PocketFives: Do you play on both Nevada sites? Do you have any preference? Brandon Leopard: WSOP.com hands-down. The software alone on Ultimate Poker is enough to avoid it. PocketFives: What do you base your current successes online on? Brandon Leopard: After I moved here and Black Friday happened, I kind of abandoned poker, playing cash games occasionally and focusing on playing music and other endeavors. I was on the verge of hitting something substantial, so Black Friday was quite a divergent point in my life. When the buzz about internet poker started back, I refocused. It was a major reason I moved here in the first place, so I have been making an effort to play the game as more than a hobby, especially considering I don't have too many things holding me back like an overly demanding job or children. PocketFives: What do you like best about playing online poker? Brandon Leopard: The fact that I can play multiple tournaments all at once while listening to music. I seem to play my best with at least three or four tournaments going. Adjusting to live might be a bit of a challenge this summer. Sundays used to be my favorite day of the week before Black Friday and they are again becoming my favorite day, albeit not quite as exciting. PocketFives: How did you choose your player name? Brandon Leopard: Zen is a Japanese form of Buddhism that came originally from China (Chan buddhism). It iterates non-attachment and enlightenment through meditation and expression of your true self, as opposed to other religions or traditions that adhere to dogma or doctrine. Satori is a Japanese word for awakening or enlightenment. An Enso is a circle drawn in one brushstroke, representing the drawer's true self, and is used as part of Zen practice by some practitioners.

  15. According to iGaming Businessand other reports, the regulated online poker sites in Nevada have amassed $8.5 million in revenue since their inception. Ultimate Poker, the first regulated online poker site in Nevada, launched on the last day of April 2013, nearly one year ago. Last September, WSOP.comjoined in the party, and in February, Real Gaming, which is affiliated with South Point, came online in a soft launch. According to iGaming Business, "Despite the introduction of a new online poker operator in February, the three websites were only able to generate $824,000 between them during the month." PokerScout.com, which tracks cash game traffic on the world's major sites, including Nevada, shows WSOP.com in the lead in the desert state with a seven-day running average of 110 real money ring game players and a 24-hour peak of 199. Ultimate Poker has a seven-day average of 70 cash game players and a 24-hour peak of 160. The three sites tallied $824,000 in online gambling revenue in February, according to iGaming Business, much higher than Delaware's three online gambling sites, which drew a scant $73,000. The same news source noted that New Jersey, which unlike Nevada allows many forms of online gambling other than poker, saw its sites rake in $10.3 million in revenue in February. PocketFives began tracking scheduled, non-satellite tournaments on WSOP.com in Nevada with at least 20 players, at least a $0.01 buy-in, and at least $100 in the prize pool for our famed Worldwide Rankings.

  16. PocketFives Member manifest, aka Todd Jackson (pictured), is following his poker dreams and recently won a seat in the World Series of Poker Main Event on WSOP.com. His WSOP.com user name is orono, named after his alma mater, the University of Maine at Orono. Manifest was the name of the garage band his friends and he played in growing up. When not playing poker, his other favorite games are NLH14 and Battlefield 4 on PlayStation 2. A former upstate New Yorker, Todd now resides in Las Vegas. We had a chance to talk with him. Visit PocketFives' Nevada poker community for the latest news and discussion from Nevada players. PocketFives: How excited are you to be playing in this year's WSOP Main Event? Todd Jackson: I'm really excited. It's the opportunity that every poker player dreams about. I've played it two other times and haven't made it out of Day 2, so I'm looking forward to another shot at it. The fact that I'm freerolling really reduces the stress of it. PocketFives: What are you doing to prepare? Todd Jackson: Ninety-nine percent of my play is in Limit Hold'em, so I really have to hit the books and work on my No Limit tournament game. It's nice that I have all of this time to prepare and I really want to give myself a shot at a deep run. I have a pretty clear sense of the things I need to work on. PocketFives: To what do you attribute your current online success? Todd Jackson: I've definitely been running well lately, so that always helps. But, in general, I think I have a pretty good work ethic. It's tough to put in a ton of hours because games aren't always running, but I subscribe to multiple training sites and read a lot of books. Players are always getting better and I'm fighting hard to stay ahead of the curve. Before a big tournament, I’ll usually try to get a workout in, eat a good meal, and meditate. PocketFives: Is there anyone who helped change how you approach the game of poker? Todd Jackson: Not any one person really. I've never had a group of poker friends to talk about the game with. So, most of my approach has been developed through forums, training sites, books, and good old trial and error. Want the latest poker headlines and interviews?

  17. Dewey Tomko(pictured), a three-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner and 2008 Poker Hall of Fame inductee, recently published an editorial in the Press of Atlantic City voicing his concerns about how cheating could have the potential to cause major damage to the newly legalized online poker industry in the US. EDITOR'S NOTE: In May 2014, Tomko said the following about the Press of Atlantic City story: "I have no association whatsoever to anything to do with that. I don't play online poker. I've never played online poker before. Not even once. I don't know anything about it. Why would I say something on something I know nothing about? I don't do that." The veteran poker player's chief concern was the threat of collusion and bots at the tables. "What worries us is well-organized teams of cheaters using hidden technology to steal from novice players now that Nevada, New Jersey, and Delaware have gone live with legalized internet poker," he said. While Tomko admitted that collusion by only two players would be easy to find, adding more players to the mix would make detection quite difficult. "Add a fourth colluding cheater and the team can gain a significant edge and, at the same time, make finding them reliably and consistently very difficult," he wrote. Tomko sites Sheldon Adelson's Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling, which recently touted a letter from the FBI to Congress outlining its fears regarding the industry. "Online casinos are vulnerable to a wide array of criminal schemes," it said. "For example, criminals may participate in games with exclusively criminal players to launder criminal proceeds or criminals might intentionally lose a game to a public official in order to effect a bribe payment." In an ad by the Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling, the organization even hyperbolically claimed that online poker could be used to finance a 9/11-style attack. Stepping back from the hysteria, though, studies by economist Friedrich Georg Schneider have shown that the online poker industry is "by no means relevant for money laundering." The poker economy is far too small and the fees too high, he said. Opponents of the Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling like the Poker Players Alliance have chimed in with the same sentiment. "The notion that licensed and regulated internet poker would be an attractive conduit for terrorism financing is, on its face, laughable," said John Pappas (pictured), director of the organization. "There isn't a shred of evidence to support this, except for far-fetched claims manufactured by this coalition." Tomko's apprehension is not meant to say that he is against the regulation of online poker in the US. "While we fully support the legalization of internet poker, we urge regulators and poker website operators to take every possible measure to ensure the integrity of the game is never compromised, nor in question," he said. "Anything less risks bringing dishonor to the game that has been so much a part of our lives." For their part, regulators have implemented strict rules and penalties that casinos must follow regarding cheating and collusion. "The casino licensee shall have an internet gaming manager responsible for the operation and integrity of internet gaming and reviewing all reports of suspicious behavior," states the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement on its website. "The internet manager shall immediately notify the division upon detecting any person… engaging in or who is reasonably suspected of cheating, theft, embezzlement, collusion, money-laundering, or any other illegal activities," it continues. For those caught in the act, the penalties can be harsh and mirror brick-and-mortar property policies in Nevada and New Jersey. The threat of jail time will likely make potential cheaters think twice, unlike at an unregulated poker site where the only punishment could be to ban the player's account. The Hall of Famer urges regulators to perform "stress tests" in order to ensure the newly operational poker sites are safe for new players. "Online poker relies on large player pools with many newcomers," he said. "The loss of trust of novice players will be damaging to the entire industry."

  20. PocketFives caught up with one of newest Nevada pokercommunity members, Mike MrBeaumontCook (pictured). His recent series of online successes on WSOP.cominclude four first place wins, including three tickets to $1,500 events at the World Series of Poker this year at the Rio. Overall, Cook has cashed 22 times for over $15,000. Cook resides in Nevada with his wife, thepokerchic. They moved two years ago from Washington and, in his words, "love" being in Nevada. PocketFives: Do you play on both Nevada sites? Do you have any preference? Mike Cook: I definitely prefer WSOP.com. That site has better satellites to live events, better software, and they've been adding to their tournament schedule. Hand histories are nice too. PocketFives: What do you attribute your current successes online to? Mike Cook: Positivity, mental attitude, and making better decisions all the time, on and off the felt. I always remain upbeat no matter the swings. I'm appreciative of the success I've had, but I'm always striving to do better. One of the most important reasons for my success online: lucky shirts. They are very important! PocketFives: What do you like best about playing online poker? Mike Cook: There are so many things: the convenience, the ability to play lots of tables, and I can have my wife and dogs here with me. I can win low buy-in satellites to go play the WSOP. I can do all of this around my schedule in the comfort of my own home. PocketFives: Do you have any plans to play at the Rio in the upcoming WSOP now that you have three $1,500 event tickets? Mike Cook: At this point, I have won three $1,500 tickets and plan on winning more, as well as a Main Event seat. I've dedicated a lot of time out of my work schedule for live tournaments this summer. That's what I will be doing. I'm looking forward to playing in the series, the Rio Deep Stacks, and some other tournaments around town. PocketFives: How are you preparing for the mental and physical aspects of the live game? Mike Cook: I am used to playing long sessions. I will be playing more live tournaments as the WSOP approaches. I am in a great place in life right now and feel I'm stronger than ever.

  23. With just over two months before the start of the 2014 WSOP, the battle for satellite seats is heating up, with many players trying to win multiple seats. These seats have no cash value and are not transferable, but offer entry to some of the most exciting events of this year's World Series of Poker. In Nevada this week, WSOP.com ran three of its four $3,000 events as scheduled. On Wednesday, the site ran a special satellite for two $1,500 seats to the 2014 WSOP. All of the events exceeded the guarantees. There were 227 runners with a total prize pool of 17,050 and 31 spots being paid. The player with the highest cash win was AK1688 with a payout of $1,537 for taking down Thursday night's event. Two players, MrBeaumont and jdcandidate, each won $1,500 seats to an upcoming WSOP event. Not being satisfied with one seat, MrBeaumont won another $1,500 WSOP seat by taking down the $5.50 R&A Satellite on Wednesday as well. This week, Ultimate Poker held four tournaments, the $2,500 Nightly events. There were 115 runners generating a prize pool of $13,286 and paying a total of 18 spots. The highest cash this week went to AmazingAK47 for taking down Thursday night's event for $1,494.67. This was the first time that AmazingAK47 has been seen at a final table in the $2,500 events.
